We're going to need a bit more info there!  I assume the pedal just goes to the floor?  Has the brake fluid level dropped?  Can you see any fluid leaks, particularly around the calipers and drums?

cars these days have dual circuit brakes which generally came in during 1970s. So worse case scenario is you should still have half braking power with the pedal going down further than it did before (still quite alarming).  Unless the problem is something more unusual like you brake pedal has snapped somewhere (very unlikely).

But even if you do have half brakes you should not drive it like that, it's designed to help avoid an accident, not to use whilst awaiting a repair.
